The Hathaway Family Plot - Wal*Mart-Approved Music [WM093]


Published April 25, 2009


Inspired by the increasing practice of musicians sponsored by corporations, these 16 tunes are The Hathaway Family Plot’s latest attempt to make music that is the anti-commodity—sloppy, unmarketable, and sometimes flagrantly difficult to listen to.
